Our Preschool Teachers
Jennifer Hoffman - Owner
Jennifer is the open arms and heart of Arts and Imagination Preschool. Her vision for creating a child-based holistic school began with her own educational experience at a pristine art based rural school located in the foothills of the Central Coast of California. Jennifer believes all children carry their own unique genius. This is the driving force behind her intuitive kindness, respect for life, and dedication to bring forth the best in each and every child. Jennifer's degree in Integrative Nutrition will provide a platform for her passion of organic and locally sourced produce. It is her hope to teach your children about the importance of good clean water and sustainable garden practices.
Nicole Wells - Director
Hello to the community of Arts and Imagination. My name is Nichole WelIs, I am a proud mother to my best friend and beautiful boy. I am also a local photographer in the community and plan to implement this into my lesson planning. My educational background is in Early Childhood and I am a qualified Director through the state of Colorado. I find passion in being a part of the moments when a child is able to connect their efforts with their passions to achieve a goal. My love for teaching has been something my heart has held tight to for many years and I am looking forward to sharing my compassion, kind heart, and determined mindset with your family. Together we can help your child connect with themselves in relation to the wild world around them!

Meghan Gruenberg -Lead Teacher/Art Director
Meghan comes to Arts and Imagination Preschool with a background in elementary education and early childhood education. Meghan quickly fell in love with early childhood after spending several years as a nanny for two young children. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Integrative Studies with a concentration in elementary education, and has spent the last year running an enrichment program in a preschool for children ages 2-5. Meghan believes children learn best if they feel supported by their peers, as well as teachers and family members. It is her passion to create a nurturing environment where children, parents, and teachers can learn and grow together. When she is not having fun in the classroom Meghan enjoys baking, hiking in the Poudre Canyon, and riding her bike on the Spring Creek Trail.
